maybe any of Bardock's squad especially his bro Tora at the very least.

I think his crew were in the background during King Cold and Frieza's visit.

You guys realize they were always portrayed as less sympathetic in the original Japanese version prior to Broly right? If anything, the dub made the Saiyans look like the victims.

I liked that they were evil because it made Goku all the more special. He was going against his nature.
Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.

I felt bad for the original ones that hadn't had their daily lives exposed yet. They've never been an "evil" race. They've always been described as a proud warrior race, like Spartans. The even more sad part is that as proud as they were, they were forced to work for Frieza against their will and he still killed them. This was all before DBS: Broly. So I don't know where this sudden belief that they were all just blood thirsty murderers comes from. Is it a dub thing or something? Even in the original Bardock Special, we saw a bunch of them sitting around in a bar smiling and having a good time. They weren't all sitting there bobbing back and forth sharpening knives, muttering Red Rum to themselves.

Not sure where you get this narrative from. Having fun and drinking is something evil people do, too. And surely it looked they were enjoying their jobs. They absolutely were evil lol
Don't play dumb with me, you're not as good at it as I am.

nope! he is one of the nice saiyans like Tarble... and Gine... and that pudgy one probably and Beet and all those other weaklings with a goodheart popping out of the woodwork

Like it is fascinating nature vs nurture seeing how Goku and Raditz are so different

Goku raised Grandpa Gohan and various other ike Bulma, Roshi and Launch all helped

Raditz meanwhile supplemental material make it seem like Bardock was a very cold father doubly so towards Raditz and i don't remember if he and Gine had any interactions with him via minus

and then was basically raised by what we see in Broly. two no name saiyans who died and Nappa & Vegeta who look down on him

not to mention being a hated minority in the FF a group of powerful people who view you as a lower species.

we see Raditz really never developed as a fighter and was rather craven resorting to cheap tactics, however he isn't even good at that trying exact same gambits multiple times....

Poor Raditz just as evil and cruel like many saiyans but is very bad at being a saiyan

> i am upset that saiyans are no longer 1 dimensional cartoon villains and some degree of nuance and perspective was actually applied to them/dragon ball for maybe the first time ever


The 90's Bardock film already did that. And even besides that, the main Saiyan cast on average are already the most nuanced and developed characters in the franchise since their introduction, with only Bulma, Piccolo, Freeza, Krillin, 17, Tien and Zamasu in general being comparable.
